1st Annual Christmas Putz House Swap - Reveal!

 The premise of this swap was to create vintage inspired Putz Houses.
They could not exceed 3"x 4" and had to have glitter somewhere...


There were 5 of us in this swap, so we made 5 (nearly identical)  little houses and swapped them out! 

If you would like to learn more about swap, please join our group here.
